Another day, another North Avenue Beach engagement picture!
If you've spent some time on this blog or my Instagram page, you know that I'm a huge fan of engagement pictures at North Avenue Beach! I've done so many sessions there and keep getting more and more requests, I feel like I'm becoming the North Avenue Beach photographer! Lol. It's a classic location that offers the beach, sunset and sunrise, and of course, the main attraction, an epic view of downtown Chicago.
Kathie and Evan came to me ready to get their Save The Dates in the mail, except they needed pictures first. Within a week, we had the perfect location and perfect outfits to match. Like many other couples and individuals who get in front of my camera, these two told me they "weren't photogenic"--and that's just not true! They showed up super giggly and happy and ready to roll with whatever I threw at them, and dannnggggg do they look good! I won't lie--having a professional who knows how to pose you and get the best angles and make you feel super comfortable helps--but y'all ARE photogenic! Even half-way through our shoot when I showed them one photo on the back of my camera, they said "wow, I didn't think it would turn out so good! I really like that one!" I promise, if you trust me, you will not be disappointed! <3
Winter engagement pictures in Chicago tend to lack color, so I love that Kathie and Evan decided to wear some red and bring a bit of a pop to their engagement session! There's nothing you can wear for engagement pictures that's more classic than a red dress in front of a gorgeous city!
We spent the afternoon together running along the pier, soaking in the "congrats" from people passing by, and laughing when I asked them to meow at each other like cats. (Yes, I really did that, and yes, the pictures turned out super cute). After spending some time together just enjoying their engagement, Kathie and Evan were ready to take some epic engagement pictures in Chicago and get to wedding planning, and I'm so happy I got to be part of this!
K + E's outfits worked together so well, and the dark tones definitely fit the winter look perfectly!
Kathie's outfit is 100% something I'd wear (ya know, on a day that more people than just my roommate see me). Check out tips on what to wear to your engagement pictures here, or check out another North Avenue Beach proposal here!
Engagement pictures in Chicago are so much fun--it's a huge city with endless photo ops, and time dedicated to you two alone!
